He was keeping his cards close to his chest.”I know he’s frustrated that he’s not playing football and, if the opportunity is there for him and things are right with Southampton, then I’m sure that he would love to (come back).”It’s an amazing club. I can’t think of anywhere better to play.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Removing John A Macdonalds name victory for IdleNoMore

first_imgKathleen MartensAPTN NewsA group of Indigenous protesters in Ontario is taking credit for chasing the name of Canada’s first prime minister off the name of a local pub.“It’s a huge victory for us,” said Theresa Eagles, a member of Idle No More Kingston/Katarokwi.“There’s been a lot of people who agree Sir John A. needs to be in a museum. Not in public for everyone to celebrate.”This week the name of Sir John’s Public House in Kingston was shortened to The Public House.The owners said it was because of the group’s protests and their desire to honour the spirit of reconciliation as the country grapples with the negative legacy of the Indian residential school system.A system Sir John A. Macdonald is credited with supporting and enforcing.“One of the reasons that we choose to attack symbols like John A. in Canada, as well as many other approaches to the activist work we do here, is because there’s these symbols of Canada (that) are symbols of racism and symbols of our genocide and our oppression,” said Krista Flute, another member of Idle No More.“He’s hugely celebrated here.”The name change, which is getting cheers and jeers on social media, is one of many ways Indigenous people want to build a more inclusive community, Flute added.“In Kingston it’s a long fight. We’ve been protesting the celebration of John A. for five years.”Fans of Macdonald usually raise a glass publicly by his statue in town as his birthday is celebrated this week. Flute said that event was cancelled last year after her group set up a demonstration.The way such monuments are being viewed is under debate following protests and violence in the United States. Macdonald, as a founder of the Dominion of Canada, has a legacy associated with treaties, residential schools and the Indian Act.“Sir John A., in my opinion, is the godfather of genocide,” added Eagles.“The fact that Sir John A.’s pub has changed their name, I believe, is a huge step in the right direction for us.”The activists now have their sights set on getting rid of the Macdonald statue and a train marked in his honour across from City Hall.However, they are expecting opposition like they saw in September.Flute said the pub called the police when they protested a drinking promotion in Macdonald’s name.“As long as symbols of our oppression are celebrated as a source of pride we’re going to continue to have a lot of work to do to fight racism,” she said.Macdonald is considered one of Kingston’s heroes and the pub reflects that. The building served as his law office from 1849-60.Memorabilia and menu items in his names will remain, the owners said.last_img read more

Mens basketball preview Ohio State versus Fairleigh Dickinson

Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorThe Ohio State men’s basketball team will look to get back on track this Saturday as they take on Fairleigh Dickinson at the Schottenstein Center.The Buckeyes are coming off a tough fought match in which they fell to No. 6 Virginia, losing by a final score of 63-61, in a game in which they once held a 16-point lead.“Obviously we were disappointed that we lost and in the way that we lost,” said sophomore guard C.J. Jackson. “I feel like we are encouraged as a team and we know how much better that game made us and how much closer we got. We connected more than we have ever since I been here and it was good to see.”The biggest issue OSU faced in the game was turnovers. The Scarlet and Gray turned the ball over 20 times compared to the Cavaliers 10. There was also a big discrepancy when it came to fouls, with the Buckeyes committing 20 to Virginia’s 11.“With the turnovers we had the other night, we have to play smarter,” said OSU coach Thad Matta. “I don’t want guys to not take risks but they have to be more calculated. When you have 20 turnovers and you shoot 50 percent, I am trying to explain to these guys that it is problematic.”OSU will hope to correct these issues as they take on Fairleigh Dickinson.The Knights enter the game with a 2-4 record. They are currently riding a two-game losing streak, coming up short against both Saint Peter’s and Army.Fairleigh Dickinson is led by guard Darian Anderson. The junior out of Washington, DC is averaging 19.7 points per game on 54 percent shooting. Anderson also leads his team in steals, averaging 1.7 a game.The Knights also receive valuable play from their big man, forward Mike Holloway. The 6-foot-7 sophomore is averaging 14.7 points per game and six boards.“We are going to see a team that is going to try and push the basketball,” Matta said. “We are going to see a ton of ball screens. We are going to see handoffs. They are going to change up defenses and press a little bit. It will be a good gauge to see how we take care of the basketball.”Despite the loss in their last time out, the Buckeyes did have some positives that they hope will give them something to build off of moving forward.“It just shows how good we really are right now and how much better we could become,” said freshman center Micah Potter. “We were down a starter, we had some silly mistakes and just didn’t execute our offense. If we can get it to where we can execute the entire game and play Ohio State basketball the entire game we will be really good. We can compete with anyone in the country.” read more
